I work with adolescents and young adults who face a variety of issues including environmental stressors, relationship and family issues, obstacles to academic achievement, poor communication, difficulty with life transitions, disruptive behavior, angry outbursts, anxiety, depression, trauma, loss, substance use, self-harming behaviors, and suicidal ideation. Real and lasting change can occur through building trust between the client and therapist and involving parents and significant caregivers to provide support to the client. I am committed to helping my clients navigate difficult life circumstances and find healthy ways to cope and thrive in their experiences. My goal is to promote self-acceptance and recognition that will foster personal emotional growth and healing.
Obtaining help by coming to therapy is a sign of strength. By talking through emotions and behaviors in therapy, clients can come to know themselves better and make better decisions for yourself. My goal is to provide a safe, compassionate, and nonjudgmental environment where I will work with clients to remove obstacles and develop steps to achieve their goals. I will work to enhance their self-knowledge and self-worth so they can assert their needs, build secure and honest relationships, form realistic expectations, stop overcriticizing themselves and others, and weather stress and setbacks. I look forward to exploring this journey with my clients!
